Oh no… winter is almost here

Oh no… winter is almost here - Robert Kenyon

Have you seen how fast is getting dark outside these days? Winter is here and I personally hate it. I never liked winter. Not when I was a child or a teenager. Not even later on when I was in my twenties. Most of my friends were attending wild parties and doing all sort of outdoors activities during the cold season, whereas I was concerned about keeping my bones warm.

Since a young age I developed a sort of arthritis that throughout time only got worse. Later on in life I discover that two other members from dad’s side of the family were suffering of the same thing. Thus I tend to believe it is a hereditary illness. My dad does not have it but his uncle and one of my cousins do. It kind of looks that it skipped one generation.

My plan is to work two more years and then become an entrepreneur, get an online business that would allow me to move somewhere warmer, at least during winter. I always liked the idea of becoming a snowbird. It’s just that I did not afford it so far.

When I seriously gave it a thought and sat down in order to do some calculations, I saw that I was not that far from seeing my dream come true. It was exciting to see that it was doable. Until that moment I thought that I would need to have a much higher pay to be able to live abroad.

Since I divorced, my expenses are much lower than before, which means I am able to add more money each month to my saving account. At least there is a bright side for being divorced.

I wish I would have seen that earlier. By now I would have had the money to go abroad.

Anyway, it is never too late to start working on your dreams. It took me a while to realize what I really wanted, I got a lot of detour turns on the way, but I am on the good path. I know who I am. I know what I want and where. I also learnt not to worry about the “with who” part. If it is meant to happen, it will happen. I stopped chasing people. You can’t make them stay or love you if they don’t feel like it. It hurts but this is the truth.

Tomorrow I have to go order some awnings Montreal. I was thinking to pass by my ex and see her. Then I realized that it would not be a good idea. I need to move forward now.
